Django Reinhardt & the Quintette du Hotclub de France

Here is some unique footage of the immortal Django Reinhardt playing 'J'attendrai' with Stéphane Grappelli and the Quintet Hotclub de France.

Amazingly, Django played with just three fingers after his hand was severely burnt in a fire in his gipsy caravan. Despite this he went on to create the genre of hot jazz together with the famous Hotclub de France.

Vive Django!
